    Rain Walker "Dream Journey" (New oil paintings and drawings)

    Hi guys.. its been a year since i last posted... im greatful for this site for being there for all you great artists here...

    i cant belive how many talented ppl are out there.. amazing photos .. amazing concept art...

    well i hope u enjoy some of my work last month... enjoy )

    ***EDIT***

    i thought i should update my story ... and why i started all this.. thanks to 4tonmantis

    - im 28 now.. and i first started drawing back in 21/7/2009 after long period of clinical depression and sever anxiety i had after some psychological problems... i always loved to draw but living in a labor family with hard life situation .. art is the last thing ppl look for where im from.. so it was hard to be an artist in these conditions.. so i got into electric engineering.. then architecture.. then graphic design.. for now i work in 3D modeling for architecture projects.. which is sooo boring.. but i never stopped loving art..

    till i was in my bed one night .. and i saw on my laptop some art work for Soa Lee.. which is amazing.. and suddenly i took the decision.. its about time to start.. it is late... and i regret that.. but better late then never..
    so i started in 21/7/2009 .. with betty`s famous book... and although i throw out all my bad sketches.. she said never throw ur first one... and i thought i should post it... for ppl to see that its possible .. to be an artist.. If you want too.. (im not an artist yet) .. but im on my way

    here is the pic.. God.. its soooo bad... lol

    You have a good sense of texture and an eye for detail. Anatomy and posture could be a bit more refined, as in the third and fourth images from the bottom, and the brightness on your images need not be turned up so highly. Other than that, you're on the right track.

    You are right Trisquel...
    the 3rd and 4th pictures are actually drawing from a model in class... i started it a week ago.. i always draw from pictures and i think i saw how much my drawings vary between live models and pictures... i dont know if i need more anatomy study or more model drawing...

    as for the brightness i think im trying to remove the grayness in the pictures in Photoshop.. i guess i over burnt it.. i will dial it down in later pictures..

    thank you for your encouragement i highly appreciate it

    Hi. Your portrait looks good, as I can see the likeness of the celebrities or famous people you're doing of. The anatomy studies looks like it's going well. Maybe work on the clothes folds on the dressed models. Keep up the good work!

    Hi jojokenni

    im glade you liked the portrait .. as u said there is some likeness.. specially when copying from a still picture... i still need a lot of work on live models or still life.. some ppl told me drawing from photos is not good on long term... coz i wont be able to create something that isnt there... (imaginative drawing).. or concept art... tomorrow i have a drawing session.. with models.. i will try focusing on clothes... strangely the instructor also told me to focus on cloths... specially folds...

    i will post tomorrow some random drawing i did last couple of months...
    stay tuned...

    Wow, really nice work. Looks like a lot of time invested into the graphite portraits and everything else for that matter. Good work, keep it up!

    thank you jNeumann

    i think the portraits took around... 6 - 10 hours each...
    i dont know if this is too slow or normal.. but i enjoyed it

    mmm i wonder how long it might take with a proper tablet ? like cintiqu...

    thankss BenjaminL

    i really should man up and start doing some digital art
    i have some but its not that good yet....
    i think the main reason is that i have a crappy genius 8x12 tablet
    that really make it hard to do any work with it.. specially that
    we dont have a wacom cintiq here .. i really think if i got my hands
    on one of those.. i would never use a pincil and paper anymore..

    but i promise i will do post some digital work next time i post...

    here are some sketchs...

    although i promised to do some digital art...
    but i couldn’t! i did some work but it isnt that good.. the genius tablet is really bad.. i was so frustrated that i went to amazon.com and ordered a cintiq 21 UX... but they said it will arrive at the first of March! so.. i need to wait 2 long months for it...

    but i promise to do alooooot of work then..

    for now .. some sketches...
